I write lefthanded and backhanded, so quick-drying inks are essential for

Chuck Swisher has a line of specially formulated quick-drying inks from
Nathan Tardif.  They dry virtually instantaneously, and I use them almost
exclusively these days. I don't believe anyone else sells them.  The
trade-off is, they tend to feather a bit.

I have  trouble negotiating Swisher's website, and any links I save just
take me to the home page.  Go to, click on Swisher
Pens Exclusives, and scroll down to "Swisher Pens Bottled Fountain Pen Ink"
(*not* the  SwishMix inks).

I've also had good luck with the new Noodler's Bullet-Proof Luxury Blue.

Usual disclaimers blahblahblah.

Well, I would also like to know what are the quickest drying inks.  I write
alot in chart notes in the hospital and there is nothing worse than a
"smear"  on the official medical record.

Hi Chuck - 

I need to find thicker inks - ones that flow slower.  Longer drying inks
won't help - since my friend is left handed.

I don't know if the term viscous precisely applies, but the more highly
saturated Private Reserve colors take longer to dry than waffle syrup.  That
makes them viscous in my book.  Also vicious.

Hi All - 

I need to recommend to someone to use a thicker ink.  With all the new inks
out there - I am not sure what to suggest.
Any thoughts?

Thanks -
